DeNA and Square Enix have announced today that they will be doing a cross-over event with Final Fantasy: Record Keeper and Final Fantasy XIV which will start next month. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper will be featuring the more popular content from the MMORPG during the cross-over event.
While DeNA may be busy with a lot of Nintendo related things these days, the company still has time to push out new games onto Google Play. Their newest release is Blood Gate – Age of Alchemy which is a blend of puzzle gaming, RPG, and real-time combat all rolled into one title.
At Pocket Gamer Connect DeNA West CEO Shintaro Asako went into a little more detail about what Nintendo’s plans are going to be regarding game releases for mobile devices. While the company recently went into a bit more detail on how they are thinking of monetizing their upcoming mobile games, they didn’t touch on what games, what genres, or how many at that time. However, now we know just a little bit more, which seems to be the pattern now.
Not too long ago Nintendo has a meeting revealing their financial goals for the near future which touched on some of their plans regarding their mobile games.

Blood Brothers 2 from publisher DeNA has been out for a bit now and today the game has been updated with some new goodies for current players to partake in. The biggest addition to the game is the new Guild system which is pretty much as it sounds. The Guild system allows for players to band together to create their own guilds.
Square Enix has begun a soft launch for their upcoming Final Fantasy game called Final Fantasy: Record Keeper. Like most soft launches, this one is specific to certain regions in the world and so far we know that the game is available to folks who live in Canada. If it follows the usual approach game developers use with soft launches, then this game should be available in regions such as Australia and New Zealand, although we have no confirmation on that just yet. Canada, however, is confirmed.
